Hey Drew.
Saw you on '60 seconds' climbing the volcano in Vanuatu. Looked EPIC
What ropes did you use? They must have been heat resistant.

Re: Things to do with scrap rope

Nah bro, we just used donaghys 10mm static line as backup and 11mm teufelberger static as main line. The 11mm was spec d by actsafe, the manufacturer of the ascenders. We had one 600m and 500m each to descend with.

Will do bro. Vanuatu looked quite similar to Fiji. There's some rubbish there too. Lol

It'll have to be next year now. I'm heading off next week, 4x4ing and camping my way from Adelaide to Darwin. Cant wait

If you have a trawl round Ebay, you can find the plastic 'snap-on' bits that 99% of rope dog leads are made with. Nae splicing required.

(Not sure why I dropped into Scottish typing there)
